We invite you to share your approaches and ideas in a presentation that will engage others in conversation and offer learning in this peer learning environment.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Monday Meeting Cancelled

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately, we've had to cancel our scheduled meeting for Monday September 16.

BUT, we would like to remind you IC conference registration is up and the early bird rate is only available until the 20th. It should be a fun conference, with field trips to locations such as Ruthven Park.
The conference takes place this year at the RBG - right in our own backyard!
